Hi, I'm GMDAn for Game Master Daniel. I've been playing D&D since 1979. Started with Basic and quickly went with 1st edition. I was Dming a group for about 4 years in the 80's before it got disbanded. I bought a few 2nd edition stuff, but didn't get to play except on-line in the advent of email. Whe...

Riddles brings up a good point.

You are right regrading your last point. But if Battlegound was also tailored to handle play by post, I could see that as a good selling point as well. When you say Online Virtual Tabletop Software, its would be really virtual.... I Dm 3 games right now using the process I described above, and the p...

Then I export the map to my disk. Use a photo shop software to do the fog of war thing, save it in jpeg forma...

Here's another challenge regarding lights and shadows. What if we can set certain points on our map that block the light from passing. For example, an adventurer is in a large room with many columns. He shines his bullseye lantern at the other end. He cannot see what is behind the column because it'...

Fog of War Question

I have a question regarding the Fog of war feature. In D&D a torch has a 20' radius of light and an extra 20' of shadowy light. So my question is, does the fog of war include the shadowy light? Cause a candle for example only radiates Shadowy light. Do you also have the cone shape for of war feature...
